HDSO commercial vehicle hoists

Engineered without a front cross bar, this hoist allows your workshop technicians to easily enter and exit from beneath the vehicle. This makes the process of front end adjustment quick and trouble free – a must for busy alignment bays.

The HDSO-14 is designed with a laundry list of key features, including longer approach ramps to accommodate a wide variety of vehicle wheelbases, extra safety for your peace of mind, and quality materials so you can be confident that your 4 post hoist is there for the long haul.

BendPak hoists meet the Australian (AS 1418.9) and International Standards.

Newly engineered medium duty hoist

Dual-hub cable sheaves

Huge 10‐1/2” diameter cable sheaves within the runway and cross tubes combined with massive 2‐1/4” diameter sheave axles dramatically improve cable wear and critical component lifespan meaning you’ll spend less money in service related expenses down the road. Dual‐hub cable sheaves reduce stress, fatigue and wear.

Heavy-duty aircraft cable

Each lift is supplied with 4 high-quality ½” diameter 6 x 25 stainless steel lifting cables, rated at 14,400 lbs. each. The combined rating of these cables is more than 411% of the maximum lifting capacity of the entire lift! This aircraft‐quality cable was specifically designed for lifting applications and provides a great balance between abrasion resistance and fatigue.  And we make sure it looks tidy too—all lifting cables are fully enclosed within the lift structure itself.

Open-Front Design
We engineered the HDSO-14 without a front cross bar so the operators can easily enter and exit from beneath the vehicle. Now the process of front-end adjustment becomes quick and trouble-free. This is a must for busy alignment bays.

Electric / Hydraulic Power System
We incorporate maintenance-free electric hydraulic power systems into each lift for ultimate dependability, and all controls are conveniently located within close reach.

Non-Skid Runways
Gives you maximum grip, even when the runway surface is wet or oily.

Longer Approach Ramps
These approach ramps were designed a little longer to help when loading low ground clearance vehicles. It’s the little bit that makes a big difference.

Hydraulic Cylinder Design

A combination of superb base materials and superior manufacturing processes ensure straight, smooth operating cylinders that will provide years of dependable trouble-free service.

Each HDS-Series four-post is equipped with a single 3-1/2” diameter hydraulic cylinder hidden away under the runway for maximum performance and reliability and minimum exposure to elements. The welded cylinder body is made from high strength steel tubing produced to exceed ASTM specifications.

The hydraulic cylinder features a one-piece, pilot fitted, machined steel piston wrapped with high-durometer, mechanically loaded rod seals, pressure loaded U-cup piston seals, backups and wear bands that virtually eliminate any fluid bypass. The micro-smooth chrome-rod is machined from high yield, ground and polished C-1045/50 micro-alloy steel and plated to a minimum of .001½ diametrically, to ensure superior cylinder operation and life. This combination of superb base material and superior processing ensures straight, smooth, cylinders that will provide years and years of dependable trouble-free service.

Flow Restrictor
An integrated hydraulic flow restrictor provides a controlled descent in the unlikely event of an unexpected hose rupture.

Durable Powder-Coat Finish

Maintenance Free Power Unit

All HDS-Series lifts feature a durable powder-coat finish that gives the metal a high-quality, extremely durable finish which can withstand even the harshest environmental or chemical conditions.

A maintenance-free electric hydraulic power system assures ultimate dependability.

All operator controls are conveniently located within easy reach.
